Feigning Offense

The “scene” that Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrat female Representatives made over an honest question regarding her stepping aside to allow for younger leadership to develop is representative of what is plaguing our society and our government.

It’s a another flavor of political correctness, and it shuts down any form of honest discourse.

The Left has learned and perfected a tactic that lets them win in just about any situation.  The trouble is that it completely lacks honesty, integrity, and honor.  Amazon Image

I wouldn’t want to be in a relationship with someone who dealt so disingenuously with me, rather than attempting to work together in a mature way.

And I sure as hell don’t want my government behaving in this childish and manipulative way.

That, I find offensive.  And I am confident that our founding fathers would take a switch to these impudent children.  Would that they were here now, rather than the representatives and leaders we are now enduring.

Win or Lose, We’ve Already Lost

I hope and pray with all my heart and soul that Obama is soundly, decisively, unequivocally rejected today

 

English: President Obama just about to deliver...

Behold, the emperor has no clothes. And the fools who admire his invisible raiments are killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

 

by the people of this once great nation.

 

But, win or lose, we’re a nation in deep, deep trouble. The fact that this socialist celebrity who desires a weaker America ever got elected, combined with the fact that his four-year term of destruction has not resulted in his leaving office in shame, tells me that this country is not what it once was.  Nixon was driven from office for far less than what Obama is hailed for (his sleazy, sleazy shenanigans in passing Obamacare) or gets away with (his deadly bungling and subsequent Benghazi cover-up).

 

How on Earth can this election actually be too close to call?! The United States of America in which I grew up, the country that I know and love, respect and honor, would never have elected this sham president with his hollow, meaningless promises of hope and change.  (And his adorers claim that Romney is not specific!)

 

And, certainly, after four years of his sleazy politics, lies, cover-ups, and destructive policies, the country that I know as the United States of America would never consider reelecting this anti-Capitalism, anti-America wolf in sheep’s clothing.

 

We have a long road to restoring this country to its greatness, considering that it seems half the country doesn’t even get it anymore. If Romney wins, we have to hope that we can deprogram the Obama supporters and teach them the joys of pride, honor, self-respect, and self-reliance. If Obama wins, I fear all is lost.

 

As for the Liberal media and the so-called journalists who have covered up all that they actually know and have failed to investigate all that they don’t know about this cult of personality, you are complicit.  It seems that you can fool half the people all the time with the help of an adoring media, and that may just be enough to topple the union.  A plague on all your houses.

The only bit of schadenfreude will come from watching the 99% wonder what happened when they find that all the producers have moved on to friendlier climes. I guess then it will be the 98-percenters against the remaining 1%. And then the 97-percenters… Until there’s nothing left but takers.  And who will they take from then?  “Tax the rich, feed the poor, ’til there are no rich no more.”

 

I mourn for Truth and Honor.  I feel for our Founding Fathers, for the Patriots who fought and died for this nation, and for my kids.

 

Shame on the Clintons

They choose party over country.  They know Obama better than most.  And they continue to cover for him, defending the Democrat Party’s image over the well-being of this country.

It’s near impossible to find an honest person on the Left.  Everything that comes out of their mouths is meant to pander to someone and for political gain.  They have lost the ability to recognize or speak Truth.

A Former Liberal Sees the Light

I just heard such an awesome call on the Rush Limbaugh show. A great guy named John who used to be a liberal, worked for a union, and has now started his own landscaping business. He’s happier and wealthier, and he eloquently described the lies that he used to believe.

My eyes actually welled up. I love stories like his.

Liberals want to prevent anyone from rising to their own potential. They are like crabs in a bucket. They’ll pull you down and make sure you stay in the muck with them.

Good for you for escaping, John. Life’s much sweeter outside the bucket.

Discovery Of Gliese 581g Giving Science A Bad Name

It used to be that science had some dignity and commanded some respect.  It was, after all, SCIENCE!

But like everything else in this age, things seem to be unraveling in the world of science.  It is no longer sacrosanct.

Earlier this year, we learned that environmental “scientists” were cooking the books for political reasons.  Rather than having absolute, unshakable integrity and dedication to The Truth, they doctored data, threw out inconvenient samples, and lied about facts.  They were the Bernie Madoffs of science.

Well, here we find a “scientist” who is making a preposterously bold claim on such thin data that it boggles the mind.  When you consider how much we do not know about the origin of life, it is astonishingly irresponsible of a reputed scientist to claim a 100% likelihood of life existing on another planet, just because we might find liquid water there.

“Personally, given the ubiquity and propensity of life to flourish wherever it can, I would say, my own personal feeling is that the chances of life on this planet are 100 percent,” said Steven Vogt, a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz, during a press briefing today. “I have almost no doubt about it.”

One-hundred percent?!  Really?!?  100%???!!!  His definition of “wherever it can” includes everywhere he’s ever been which includes, um, Earth.  And from there he extrapolates to include the perhaps trillions of planets revolving around hundreds of billions of stars in our own galaxy, not to mention the seemingly infinite galaxies in the rest of the universe.  Life has never been created in a laboratory here on Earth, yet Professor Vogt is positive that it exists on this newly found planet, given the fact that it might have liquid water on it.  Gas stations also have a propensity to flourish wherever they can, so they must also exist on Gliese 581g.

This has nothing to do with religion or creationism.  It’s just painful to see science falling into the hands of such inadequate stewards.

When you can’t trust scientists to be true to science, your world is in serious trouble.  Though you can’t tell it from the placid picture above, the planet shown is in serious trouble.  And it’s not because of fabricated global warming.  It’s got more to do with the feeble-minded, emotional creatures that infect its surface.

Hopefully, the scientists that undoubtedly exist on Gliese 581g will have a stronger commitment to hard-core science than Steven Vogt does.

Freedom != Equality

 Robert Ringer wrote an excellent reflection on freedom, which, in part, says:

Also, throughout recorded history, utopian thinkers have confused freedom with equality. But nothing could be more incorrect. No matter what one’s moral desires, nature has made freedom and equality totally incompatible. “Freedom and equality,” wrote Will and Ariel Durant, “are sworn and everlasting enemies, and when one prevails the other dies.’’

As the government steps up its efforts to defy nature and bring about equality on a global scale, it will find it increasingly necessary to employ force. And when force enters the picture, some people are going to come under the control of others — which is tyranny, not freedom.

 Kurt Vonnegut wrote a great story about equality taken too far.  Much too far.  And yet, these days, it doesn’t seem as far-fetched as I would like.
